General Tips
Always use the latest version of Google Chrome.
Turn off any ad-blockers - anything that blocks UDP traffic will create issues.
Disable any VPNs in use, as they may throttle bandwidth between locations.
Close any extra browser tabs or windows.
Close any background applications.
Use the strongest internet connection available (ethernet > wifi).
If using a laptop, we recommend keeping it plugged in.
Using a headset will provide a better experience.

Step by Step Instructions:

This is the STAGE TEN Studio

Step 1: Invite Participants to Join the Show

Use the invite (+) button to generate an invite link. 

'Copy to clipboard' and send the invite directly to known live participants or post publicly to followers.

To set-up OBS streams, see this article.

To set-up ReLive streams, see this article.

When participants connect, they'll appear in the 'Feed Pool'.

NOTE: If you start a new broadcast, or refresh the browser with the STAGE TEN Studio, you'll need to generate a new invite link - the previous links will no longer be valid.

Step 2:  Activate Live Video Feeds to get them Ready for Broadcast

In order to include participants in your broadcast, drag them from the Feed Pool into the Line up area (underneath your own camera feed)

Step 3: Add Media Assets to Customize your Broadcast

Click the add media (+) button to add media assets. You can add multiple assets at once by selecting them with the Shift key.

Video Requirements: must be mp4, 30 FPS, and maximum 720p resolution - further details here

Image Specs: must be RGB jpg or png; Images should be in a 16:9 aspect ratio to prevent stretching. Max suggested size: 1280 x 720.

Step 4: Build Scenes using Layouts and Overlays

To build a scene, select your layout from the top of the Scene Builder.

Drag live video feeds and/or media assets into the layout. The layout must be filled before it can be taken live.

You may add persistent audio (audio-only) sources (from live video feeds, gameplay or video clips) in the box immediately below the Scene Builder.

To add Overlays, use the Overlay Bar:

Step 5: Activate Stream Control

Toggle the switch on to start streaming to a destination. You can broadcast to multiple destinations (channels and social platforms).  

Step 6: Go Live 

Click the pink 'Go Live' button to take your scene live.
Your scene is now live, and will appear in the live monitor.

Note: There will be 5 to 20 second delay before your live stream appears on your selected destination(s).

Step 7: Backstage Chat

Receive notifications when live participants are added to the Feed Pool.
Send and receive messages to your participants using the Backstage Chat window.
